A landmark proof-of-concept study reveals a novel brain-machine interface using ultrasound tracking brain activity to predict subsequent motor movements. The preliminary research suggests a non-invasive way of controlling computers with one's mind.
Human trials for a first-of-a-kind device designed to treat the brain via electrical stimulation have brought some very promising results, leading to significant quality-of-life improvements for a pair of men with motor neurone disease (MND).
How much better could drones be if you got rid of fiddly hand controllers and flew them with your mind? That's the question EEGSmart asks with this quad, which responds to brainwaves and head movements instead of thumbsticks. It's not perfect, but it gives a glimpse of a mind-controlled future.
